    Any one else finding it difficult to find gender neutral clothes that aren't white or is it just me?

    We haven't bought anything for baby (due May) cause I really want something pretty and not white to be the first thing we buy (for baby coming home.)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    I had a lot of pastel colours and grey. I really liked grey, we didn't really have a coming home outfit, was just a lovely grey sleepsuit with sheep on

    We had a grey sheep sleepsuit. One of my favourites! Most of our early wardrobe was white though. It does seem to be hard to buy nice gender neutral newborn stuff.

    I didn't find out with my first 2 and won't with this one- we have a LOT of stripes, and a lot of red, green, yellow, tan, and brown things. There's a ton out there!

    I love the Next 'born in...' Sleepsuits as the going home outfits!

    I had the 2013 for my little boy, which yes was white, bit unisex. I think the 2016 one is white and grey xx

    Have you thought about buying white and then dying them a colour you like? Google dyes suitable for baby clothes to make you you get one that is ok to use.

    Or buying white and then sewing patches/logos/appliqué on to jazz them up?

    Also, stripes and stripey stuff can be adorable too, especially for an announcement pic. Maybe rainbow stripes or multi-colour polka dots etc? I'm currently knitting for a relative who isn't finding out sex, and I'm making a striped blanket in grey, white, and darker purple. Greens, purples, greys, and maybe teal/turquoise and red suits I would consider pretty unisex in terms of colours. You also have things in way of browns and beige :) H&H 9 months xx

    I got these off ImpKids, they came today (all 0-3m, socks are 0-6m)

    I also got these slipper socks in 0-6m from kidcolour

    I have a few stripey long sleeve rompers (one in the same colours as the rainbow stripe vest) and some white babygrows with multi coloured stars and polka dots.
